God has heard my heart cry out to Him ....

Last week I was praying not that God would remove the hardships in my life right now but that I could have a moment to breathe and have some hope to continue through the adventure I am on right now. I prayed it hoping for that but okay with not getting it. But this God started answering it last week. He provided a Christmas tree for us. One that is real and is one of the most beautiful ones we have had. Not that this is a big deal but it was one less thing we needed to figure out what we were going to do or how to make it happen. Then he has blessed us with work opportunities to provide for our needs. He has also provided for us financially through out the past few weeks from gifts that we have been given.

I tell you all of this to say that God has heard my cry for hope and has blessed me way more than what I thought in my little prayer last week. Things are still hard but I have a renewed hope that helps me get through another day, another week, another month - and for that I am thankful. I hope that you can see through this how real God is and that He does provide for our needs and even beyond that.

* To all of you who have been God's hands providing for our family's needs during this season of our life, thank you. May God bless you for your faithfulness and kindness.

* To those of you who are struggling with anything know that God hears your cries and He takes care of you, trust Him and His timing. It may not look like what you want or come at your timing but He does not leave you alone to face your trails with nothing.

"Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge."
~Psalms 62:8 (NIV)
